This months Stamping with Friends blog hop, I chose for the month of May to create a card using the Sweet Strawberry bundle. May is Strawberry month and May 2nd is Lemonade day. When I think of strawberries, I think of the lemonade shake ups that we get at our local and state fairs. On those hot days walking around looking at all the activities, watching family and friends riding the rides. Smelling the fair food as we walked down the fairway, boy that can create quiet a thirst. We stop at our favorite Shake-Up stand and have our lemonade and strawberry lemonade drinks.
Here is a recipe if you would like to create one at home.
Here is a qucik recipe using only 4 ingredients, these strawberry lemon shake ups are sure to keep you cool and refreshed on a hot summer day. Once you shake it up sit back, relax, and enjoy the best homemade strawberry lemonade recipe!
What you will need:
A 20 oz. glass with a tight-fitting lid
1 cup of crushed ice (8 regular ice cubes)
1 cup water
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3 large ripe strawberries
Start off by crushing your ice. Crushed ice helps to cool the drink faster, the smaller pieces will dilute the drink and make it less cloyingly sweet, and it helps to dissolve the sugar faster. Clean your lemon and strawberries well. Core the strawberries and quarter the half lemon. Add to your glass along with the sugar, ice, and water. Put the lid on securely and shake, shake, shake it up! Shake for a good 30-45 seconds to completely dissolve the sugar. Makes an 18oz drink. Enjoy!
